CCAR Member Benefits
It's Good to be a Member!
Your CCAR membership automatically extends to the South Carolina REALTORS® (SCR) and the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR). The combined power of these organizations provides a focal point for you to locate products, services, information and many other tools to aid your business. The National Association of REALTORS®, The Voice for Real Estate®, is the world's largest professional association. The term REALTOR® is a registered collective membership mark that identifies a real estate professional who is a member of the National Association of REALTORS® and subscribes to its strict Code of Ethics.
Those individuals who hold REALTOR® membership are entitled to use the REALTOR® logo in connection with their real estate business.

CCAR actively participates in legislative advocacy. A full time Governmental Affairs Director is on staff to keep members informed on local issues and to represent members at local meetings. Through RPAC, members have a stronger voice on legislation that affects the real estate industry at the local, state and national levels. The CCAR RPAC/Legislative committee is instrumental in this process. Members have an opportunity to contribute to RPAC and meet with legislators at RPAC functions such as Legislative Pig Pickin, receptions, and the annual RPAC fundraisers.
CCAR feels very strongly about “giving back” to the community. CCAR has a member volunteers who helps to provide services that enhance the community and support the overall quality of life for our community. We do this by providing opportunities to assist our community through various charitable organizations. Organizations we have helped are American Red Cross, American Heart Association, Helping Hand, and Habitat for Humanity.
